VW Golf GTI failed emissions test

3 posts in this topic

Hi, my 02 Golf GTI recently failed MOT on emissions. Diagnosis as to blue smoke issue seems to be piston rings. Advice is to scrap it or put a secondhand engine in. Seems a shame to scrap it as it's pretty uptogether. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation, Paul

Welcome to TsN +++

If you don't want to get shot of it, then fix the problem, but it does come down to how much it'll cost to do I guess. Depends on your budget.

Good luck in getting it fixed.

Welcome to Tyresmoke.

How handy are you? Its not such a hard job to strip it if you've got space and do the build yourself. If you have to swap engines you'll soon pass the value of the car so depends how together it is and what value it has to you +++
